04 Oct Pershing 6X excites at it’s global debut
The Ferretti Group Pershing Yachts showcased the new Pershing 6X at the Cannes Yachting Festival as it made its global debut. With its “unrivalled aesthetic and technological innovation” the 6X and its highly aerodynamic profile express the boldest side of the brands character.
With a top speed of 48 knots, powered by twin 1550HP Man V12 engines, the 6X is the ultimate blend of luxury and performance. With such high top speeds, Pershing, using their experience from previous models, developed a new version of the EasySet system that optimizes trim and performance while cruising as it simplifies the use of surface propellors.
In addition to the unique and advanced interface of the EasySet system, are both a joystick that is coupled to the surface drive offering various advanced operating modes, and a Dynamic Positioning System that keeps the boat steady in strong winds and currents. The DPS is perfect solution for slow maneuvering in high traffic areas while you wait to moor, refuel or wait for a bridge to open.
Similar to other “X” models, the 6X features a large sun pad with an adjustable back rest on the bow. There is another sun pad with that overlooks the hydraulically operated swim platform that also facilities the ease of launch of the yacht’s tender from the garage which is capable of holding a Williams Jet TurboJet 325. The covered cockpit features a large L shaped couch capable of seating eight people with an adjustable carbon fibre table topped with soft touch teak for an exquisite exterior dining area. From the cockpit as well is an entrance to the crew quarters for one crew with a separate cabin and bathroom.
The interior of the 6X is flooded with natural light with the extensive windows and features a 3 cabin layout in the first model with a full beam master suite aft, a VIP cabin forward and another guest cabin on the starboard side. The 6X is also available in a two cabin layout, turning the guest cabin into a large extra living space.
